of the day directed at leon panetta, the topic benghazi. >> my question to you during that eight-hour period did the president show any curiosity about how is this going? what kind of assets do you have helping these people? did he ever make that phone call? >> it appears we learned the president of the united states was in fact awol during that terrorist attack that took the lives of a u.s. ambassador and three others. now, the man you just heard from senator lindsey graham is here.

to another topic, and it yielded a surprising set of answers from defense secretary leon panetta, and the joint chiefs chairman, general martin dempsey. arizona republican john mccain asked about a report that president obama rejected a proposal to arm syrian rebels last summer. >> did you support the recommendation by secretary of state... then secretary of state clinton and then head of c.i.a. general petraeus that we provide weapons to the resistance in syria? did you support that? >> we did. >> you did support that. >> we did. >> suarez: so far, the president's judgment has been that things won't get better with american arms. instead, he's warned the weapons might fall into the hands of extremist elements, a concern reiterated today by the new secretary of state, who was asked about the deliberations last year. >> i don't know what the discussions were in the white house and i'm not going backwards. the new administration, we're going forward from this point. there are serious questions about al nusra and a.q.i.-- al qaeda in iraq-- and other violent groups on ground. >> sua
the white house and from the administration, and when you look back at panetta's last week in the hearing when he said he called the president at 5:00 and didn't touch base with him again. it's a fallout from the president being too focused on the election, not taking care of the embassador and our folks out there in benghazi that unfortunately had to die because of this. >> chris, do you think it's the president's fault, that he was too focused on the election and didn't do anything else that night? >> you know, i think it's easy to be -- it's a cheap shot. the reality is and the administration has been clear, mistakes were made. secretary -- former secretary of state clinton testified multiple times, she talked about what happened. there was -- she took responsibility for this terrible event. there was an investigation independent in terms of what happened and how to prevent it from happening. it seems strange at this moment that senator graham is decide to go put a hold on this. to be honest, my opinion, it has more to do with the fact there's a serious division between former senator
panetta said the plan to provide weapons to vetted fighters was ultimately rejected by the white house. the disclosure came as panetta and martin dempsey, chair of the joint chiefs of staff, appeared before a senate panel thursday where the also testified about the fatal attack on u.s. diplomatic mission in benghazi, libya last year. this is leon panetta. clip later inthat the broadcast. amid questioning of the placement of troops during the libya attack, martin dempsey and the military is looking into building "small, rapidly deployable forces" around the world. a bangladeshi man who tried to block the new york federal reserve bank with a fake bomb as part of an elaborate fbi sting operation has pleaded guilty to terrorism charges. 21-year old quazi nafis faces 30 years to life in prison following his arrest last october. the fbi supplied every component of the attack including the inert explosives, the band used to carry them, the detonator, and even the storage facility where an agent helped quazi nafis assemble the fake bomb. the agent even reportedly planted the idea of using a re

. peters basilica. stunning. >>> he cannot leave yet that does not mean leon panetta cannot say good-bye. and that is precisely what the defense secretary did today in his farewell ceremony. this is just outside the pentagon. he spoke about his challenges his replacement must face. >> you're going to have to continue to deal with rogue states like iran and north korea. we just saw what north korea has done in the last few weeks. a missile test and now a nuclear test. they represent a serious threat to the united states of america. we have got to be prepared to deal with that. >> deal with that, he says. panetta has been leading the pentagon for the last 18 months. but he's been in public service for the last five decades. >>> live this hour, big moment for chuck hagel, the man president obama would like to become the next secretary of defense. the senate armed forces committee holding a vote on hagel's nomination. and while it is likely he will be confirmed, several republicans, they're still putting up a fight. that happens this hour. >>> also, cereal and soda? pepsi introducing a n
cuts and now they are saying it would be so awful. leon panetta, the defense secretary, saying it would hollow out the military and have grave reactions. this is not how washington is supposed to operate, is it? >> no, it's not. and let me explain. when the president proposed the sequester, it was as an incentive to those of us in congress to work together in a bipartisan way to solve these problems. it was supposed to be so awful that the supercommittee would finally reach a bipartisan agreement. but because they completely reject the revenue, it never happened. now that we have gone over fiscal cliff. we have proposed about roughly $700 billion in new taxes on the wealthiest americans over the next 10 years. the president believes, and i agree, within tax reform we can find additional savings over the next 10 years. use that to move toward deficit reduction and still keep this economy moving forward. >> how do you gain this -- again, i go back to what the president said a year ago, that he would fight obstruction with action. what is it that he has to show for that? the one piece of a
defense secretary leon panetta warned that those countries and the uses will have to contend with, quote, rogue states for some time. >> you just saw what north korea has done in these last few weeks. the missile test and now a nuclear test. they represent a serious threat to the united states of america. we've got to be prepared to deal with that. >> steven: north korea's own public statement insisted today's test was only a first response. it said it will be additional actions to come but gave no specifics. >> brown: and i'm joined by ambassador charles "jack" pritchard, former u.s. special envoy for north korea negotiatons under president george w. bush. and james acton, a senior associate in the nuclear policy program at the carnegie endowment for international peace. ambassador pritchard, i guess one obvious question is why now? >> it's a great question. and i usually start by saying why not now? let me explain that. north koreans have a very mature and serious nuclear weapon and a missile technology program. they're going to continue to do the research and development. when the tim
panetta said it would be irresponsible for the congress to allow it to happen. many of us agree, it must be avoided. but apart from that challenge in the next month, or series of months, the long-term outlook for the department of defense is that it must do more with less, and secretary hagel, if he is confirmed, will have that management task, and he is one of the people in this country who is almost uniquely qualified to carry it out. and i believe that he will with great distinction. he will take care of our men and women in uniform and strengthen our national defense, he will do what he thinks is right even if it's not popular, and he is, finally, as everyone has said, a good and decent man. i thank in particular senator mccain for his very compelling and telling comment during our consideration before the vote in the armed services committee. he said -- and i agree -- no one should impugn chuck hagel's character. he's a person of integrity and character. and i believe that he will have the respect at all levels of our defense, men and women who serve and sacrifice every day, men and
and decisions have been given to panetta and to dempsey and-- >> fact remains, marjorie. two navy seals were killed in the final hours of this, eight hours into it. i don't think there's much sol list to their families there was a little bit of a break down and sorry, but they'll try to figure out a way from happening again. >> agreed. you have to look at the greater picture of what we're dealing with even in the dod and intelligence community, the demands put on our resources and amount of money it takes to have available resources at all the embassies and all the locations that they were seeing threats those days, something we have to look at. >> martha: i understand that, but there were. >> martha. >> martha: there were people ready to go. lars, the last thought, i'm sorry to cut you off. >> this is absurd. senator rand paul pointed out that the other embassies spent money on things, electric car charging stations and goodies and nice things while we're ignore basic security in a country at war, where our people are in harm's way? this is absurd. the fact that, you know, as senator mccain
of misfit toys. >> stephanie: lindsey graham and leon panetta on a sunday show. >> this is from the hearing. >> are you are surprised the president never called you secretary panetta and said how is it going? >> normally, in these situations -- did he know the level of threat -- >> let me finish the answer. we were deploying the forces. he knew we were deploying the forces. he was being kept -- >> i hate to interrupt you but i got limited time. we didn't deploy any forces. >> why is he asking questions if he doesn't want to hear the answer? >> stephanie: lindsey graham. >> chance for him to pontificate. >> if i were a family member and one of my loved ones was killed in benghazi, i would be sick to my stomach. >> stephanie: i would certainly get to the bottom of who cut the funding for security -- oh, it was me. >> oops. >> stephanie: this was the fit we talked about earlier. >> play it again? >> stephanie: senator lindsey graham. >> i don't think we should allow brennan to go forward for the c.i.a. directorship, hagel to be confirmed to secretary of defense until the white house gives us a
defense budget. just last week secretary panetta announced the indefinite array of a a deployment in the middle east in development that was a darkly welcomed by the regime in tehran and egypt despite all the best hopes of the arab spring president morsi and the muslim brotherhood government has shown hostility toward the opposition groups and have taken an increasing bellicose tone towards our ally in israel. these developments require us to think long and hard as we will be sharing with them the controversial f-16 transfers and frankly i didn't agree with that but it's a tough area and i think if you look through that area, general austin you have iran and it maintains a determined to acquire nuclear weapons capability. it's been going on for a long time and we found our intelligence -- about the capability but they have developed so far. it's serious. and iraq are premature withdrawal has contributed to to a deteriorating situation and allowed al qaeda to establish a foothold in syria and assad's rain and brutality is claiming the lives of over 60,000 syrians and risks spilling
